Janet's Foss :: Shared Description

Janet's Foss is a small waterfall in the vicinity of Malham. It carries Gordale Beck over a limestone outcrop topped by tufa into a deep pool below. The pool was traditionally used for sheep dipping.
The name Janet (sometimes Jennet) is thought to be a folk tale reference to a fairy queen who inhabited a cave at the rear of the fall. Foss is a Nordic word for waterfall, still used in Scandinavia, and is presented in a number of cases in England as 'force'
